The Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan has two questions for Metro Detroiters: why is public transportation important, and where do they want it to take them? The Authority will seek answers at a series of community meetings starting next week in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, and Washtenaw counties. CEO Michael Ford tells WDET’s Pat Batcheller he wants to know what obstacles people face when they use mass transit. The first of five RTA open houses is scheduled from 1 pm until 7:30 pm Monday, May 18 at Eastern Michigan University’s Student Center in Ypsilanti.
You can take the RTA’s survey at this web site.
